Peter was such a fun loving person. He would always make you smile, no matter the situation. We had some great times together living in Paris. Peter will be missed.

I’m at a loss for words. I met Peter many years ago at Ryan James gallery. I instantly connected with him because he is a fellow observer and old soul.
His support of my art and ideas meant more to me than I could ever verbally express to him or his family. When he traded me one of his art pieces for mine, it pulled me out of the dark place I was in. Just to have someone “see” me and really hear me, brought me back from the brink.
This gentleman touched every life he came in contact with and his lust for life was infectious. He was and will continue to be an inspiration for me.
I often think how I can better this world and I have found the answer. I’m going to strive to be more like Peter. Hopefully, I can bring light to other’s life like he brought to mine.
Rest In Peace my friend.

It is with such sadness that I learned of Peter's passing but with such joy that I recall the many times we shared great conversations about art, travel, food, wine and family. I enjoyed working with Peter and Ryan James on the China Show and others, and attended many art events in the Kirkland community together. Peter's personality was larger than life and still shines bright in our hearts. Thank you for inspiring us and living large!

We are broken hearted to learn of Peter's passing. William and Peter met one another through Ryan James and Peter came with Ryan to William's special birthday party about 4 years ago. The two of them had a exhibition in Ryan's gallery a couple years ago and we have such lovely memories spending time sipping wine, talking art. One of our biggest regrets is we did not make it to Paris for a visit. He spirit was magnetic; his smile would brighten an entire room. Peter truly was one of those souls with a zest for life and all its magic. Peter will never truly be gone from our lives - he gave us so much. And now, Peter, the angels are with you and we imagine you painting them. Our love and warmth extends to your family, always.

With love,

William and Josie Turner

I and everyone at the gallery are very saddened to hear about Peter. He was one of the very first artists we signed to the gallery and he became our biggest supporter and very close friend. He invited us into his home and not only shared his amazing art talents with us but also cooked so many amazing meals for our group to bond over. Peter helped shape the gallery and is a big part of our art family and will be truly missed.

My family is saddened by the news of Peters passing. We were luck enough to know the Knox family when we all moved to Paris, France. Allegra and our daughter Katherine (along with Emily O'Neil and Maria Nowiki) were quickly friends. We are also one of the lucky (expats) who have an original Peter Knox painting of one of our favorite places near our home. Peter always had a smile and a kind word and was a blast to hang out with. My favorite memory is when Peter took me to see his studio in Paris where he was sharing with other french painters and he got his inspirations from. He was so proud of being part of the french Art community. he also showed me all his favorite places to buy fruit and veggies, his butcher, cheese monger, bakery and he showed me the jewel of a place you could bring your own container and get olive oil from around the world. We are blessed to have known him, hang with the family at a few dinners and for our girls to be friends. You will be missed.

We are extremely sad to hear this news and extend our sincere condolences to all of you. Like many...our walls in the house hang many paintings (expat treasures) done by Peter (“@Peter Paris”), a man always with a smile. You are all in our our prayers. - Bryan, Deb, Emily and Josh.

Peter - your infectious smile and laughter drew people to you. Your creative painting skills emerged while we were all in Paris, and two of your pieces hang in our home. We will never forget Jane Van Aken’s raucous “Tartan Army” weekend in Scotland where all you boys gleefully sported kilts and the group got in touch with our inner children. But somehow, you courageously lived your life that way 24/7. You are, and will be, truly missed.

Dear Peter,
I know you can hear me. We meet in Paris some 7 years ago and became fast friends. Your passion for art, exploring Paris, new restaurants, illegal bbq on that little balcony off your kitchen was truly inspirational. Your tennis game, not so inspirational. But as you reminded me two weeks ago, those tennis games with Acher in Parc de Saint-Cloud were just an excuse for us to hang out and drink beers. We sadly lost touch around my departure from Paris. My fault! Somehow, like an angel, you came back to me early this year right around my cancer diagnosis. You checked in often and helped me through successful treatment. I can still see that gleam in you eye when you had a great idea, and can hear that laugh which was so very contagious. Peter, you will be missed by all, but never forgotten. As you often said, “love you man”. Cliff
